         Content Delivery Network Interconnection (CDNI) Metadata


   The Content Delivery Network Interconnection (CDNI) Metadata    interface enables interconnected Content Delivery Networks (CDNs) to    exchange content distribution metadata in order to enable content    acquisition and delivery.  The CDNI Metadata associated with a piece    of content provides a downstream CDN with sufficient information for    the downstream CDN to service content requests on behalf of an    upstream CDN.  This document describes both a base set of CDNI    Metadata and the protocol for exchanging that metadata.
